O.K. I started out the Dylan set with some angst but by the time i hit Chimes of Freedom I have to admit the Dylan and Dead have a great groove going.
Perhaps I also need to admit that the time the Grateful Dead spent with Bob Dylan actually was beneficial like a two way street.
SLOW TRAIN is great! First tune I hear Brent really singing some backing vocals,,,You can just hear them tearing into the tune.
I was at the Philly show and was pretty underwhelmed but I will have to give these Dylan sets with the Dead a better listen.
JOEY is absolutely incredible.
Dylan has an ability to just get inside a tune and bring it to life.
I dig Garcia's vocals behind Dylan!
To jam out on a tune with so many vocals
is pretty cool.
Wow! Powerful.
The Watchtower- A song the Dead made their own.
One of my peek Deadhead moments was dancing to Watchtower with thousands of hippies, dancing bone to bone, I actually think Weir topped everyone except Jimmi Hendrix with his version of All Along the Watchtower.(Of course it didn't hurt to have Garcia on guitar!)
Heaven's Door-good but the real climax of this show somewhere during JOEY and WATCHTOWER!

Subject: The Minority Report
I'm probably in the deep minority on this show. It was a hot day, and the crowd was a little grumpy due to the Dead's single "megaset" performance. Yeah, I wanted two sets, too. Oh well, we were still having a blast, way down front, sweating out the toxins.

The crowd thinned for Dylan. Odd. This was poised to be a legendary moment, and yet there were many who were simply not interested in witnessing it. We edged forward a little. My buddy was a Dylan freak, and we were both beaming. Jerry ripped it up here and there (Ballad of Thin Man, Slow Train, Joey), and we were ecstatic for the pedal steel.

I always felt that 10 or so more shows would have brought these guys to a whole new level. This many years later, I'm now a Dylan freak, and I can appreciate this even more. It's difficult to believe that this could now be considered "mid-career" Dylan. Man . . .

(Sounds like a typical mid-80s noise reduction was used on this recording. Dolby C?)

Subject: Actually
A couple of these cuts were used on the official release - "Slow Train Coming" and "Joey"

Subject: For Dylan and the Dead
This is a good sounding show. Dylan sounds more sober here than he does on the official Dylan and the Dead album
